Welcome to Association for Educational Communications and Technology

"AECT means a lot to me. It is my family and a place where I can grow professionally.
I'm glad that I am a 
member of it!"

Szu-Yueh (Justine) Chien, Ph.D, University of Wisconsin-Extension


The Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) is an international organization that values diversity of thought, culture and people whose activities are directed toward improving learning. AECT members may be found in colleges and universities; in the Armed Forces and industry; in museums, libraries, and hospitals; and in any other places where educational change takes place. AECT members include instructional designers, researchers, professors and teachers, educational technologists, and other professionals united by a passion for improving teaching and learning. Our members serve in many different settings including education, business and industry, non-profits, military, health care, and other environments. AECT members fulfill a wide range of responsibilities in the study, planning, application, and production of communications media for instruction.


AECT has become a major organization for those actively involved in instructional design and the development of a systematic approach to learning. It provides an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of ideas among its members and target audiences; it is the national and international advocate for the improvement of instruction; and it is the most widely recognized source of information concerning a wide range of instructional and educational technology. AECT and its members have numerous state and international affiliates, all of which are passionate about finding better ways to help people learn. AECT is the oldest professional home for instructional designers and continues to maintain a central position in the field, promoting high standards of scholarship and practice. AECT has 10 divisions and a Graduate Student Assembly that span the breadth and depth of the field. The association produces two print bimonthly journals, Educational Technology Research and Development and TechTrends, and three electronic journals, Journal of Formative Design in Learning, The Journal of Applied Instructional Design, and  International Journal of Designs for Learning.
